The Top 10 Most Useful Items For Your Twin Baby Registry
June 12, 2023
Nothing beats the excitement of finding out you’re expecting, except finding out you’re expecting twins! With two babies comes double the fun, double the excitement, and double the necessities. When you’re expecting twins, your baby registry looks a little different than it would for a singleton. You’ll have to add duplicates of most items, like car seats, cribs, bouncers, etc., but it’s important to remember that every baby has different preferences—and twins are no exception. Although finding out you’re carrying multiples can be as overwhelming as it is exciting, there are plenty of innovative products on the market today that are specially designed to handle some of the chaos and make your life with twins a little easier. Since Toki’s very own VIP Coordinator and Amazon Specialist Tara Dion is a Super Mom to multiples, we consulted her on the items she found most useful for her twins.
At a whopping 7 by 5 feet, this super padded play mat provides more than enough room for two babies to explore and work on their motor development. Made from natural latex foam that’s certified non-toxic, this mat is soft enough to catch tumbles, but firm enough to support standing. Its modular build and a carry handle make it super easy to fold and take it wherever you go, so your littles always have a soft surface for play.
Specially designed for bottle feeding twins, this two-seated product allows you to safely feed your little ones at home or on-the-go. Its padded seat inserts are removable for easy cleaning (just throw them in the washing machine!) and a bottle holder on each side prevents spilled milk or mix-ups. To take it from room to room or on your next road trip, simply grab the carry handle on the back of the product.
This handy pillow allows moms to breastfeed or bottle feed twin babies while providing necessary back support for comfort. Its innovative design props up two babies and clips in the front for extra support. This pillow is foam-free, hypoallergenic, lead-free, and non-toxic so parents can rest easy while they feed their littles.
This handy machine with patented mixing technology automatically mixes formula and water to create the perfect consistency every time. Fully customizable for amount and temperature, the Baby Brezza makes a warm formula bottle without the hassle of measuring and mixing. Say goodbye to late night spills and frazzled emotions from trying to warm a bottle while comforting a hungry, screaming baby!
This car seat frame stroller is a must-have for twin parents. Not only is it compatible with many major car seat brands (just add the necessary adapters!), it offers a unique side mount for easy access to both babies. It’s sturdy, stable, and easy to maneuver, and provides a large underseat basket for plenty of storage space.
This twin baby carrier combines a traditional wrap with ergonomics for the most comfortable and hip-healthy carry. Babies are carried in an upright position on your belly with the proper M position so their hips can develop properly. Rather than carrying one baby on your front and one baby on your back, this carrier allows you to carry your twins side by side so they can stay close to you and each other.
Every baby is different, and twins are no exception. Although one bottle type might be the most appealing to you, it’s a different story once your babies arrive. One baby might take to one brand straightaway, while the other is much pickier. Rather than stocking up on one bottle brand, you should try out several before committing. Babylist’s Bottle Box contains five of the most popular bottles so that you have options in case your little ones are on the pickier side.
Take the fuss out of grocery shopping with this double shopping cart cover that keeps two babies comfortably in place. Lightly padded for comfort, this cart cover features safety straps with buckles, four leg holes, and large storage pockets for your phone, keys, or wallet. Say bye-bye to germs with this machine-washable cover that’s easy to use and easy to clean.
Babies go through a lot of diapers, and twin babies go through even more. Life with twins feels like a never-ending balancing and juggling act, and having to stay on top of your inventory of diapers and wipes is just another thing that adds to the chaos. This diaper and wipes subscription from Honest not only allows you to bundle and save, it does the work for you so you never have to make a last-minute run to the store.
Having twins means having two of everything, and this baby monitor comes with two cameras and a split screen that allows you to watch both babies at the same time. Since this monitor doesn’t require Wi-Fi to operate, there’s no risk of hacking and privacy invasion. 2-way audio allows you to communicate with your little one without entering the room, and HD cameras let you supervise with a crystal-clear picture.
